BooBoo Kids is now offering get well gifts online
Northeast Ohio business expands sales to online — just in time for back to school.
Cleveland, OH - School is in session! Fall brings injuries and health issues of all shapes and sizes, sending thousands of children to doctors and emergency rooms. Extracurricular events, sports such as football and soccer, bike riding, tree climbing and skateboarding make this time of year vulnerable for any child, accident-prone or not. Add ER visits related to allergies — such as the accidental peanut product in a shared school treat — and you’ve got a waiting room full of kids. That’s where BooBoo Kids comes in.
BooBoo Kids offers get well gifts that bring healing and laughter to any kid’s heart. T-shirts with slogans like, “I went to the ER and all I got was this lousy cast!” “No peanuts please!” and “Scars make better stories than tattoos!” can be purchased online at boobookids.com and at select hospital gift shops. The shirts are folded in a cheery box with a certificate of wellness, offering the ideal get well gift alternative to candy, flowers and balloons.
The story of BooBoo Kids begins with 4-year old Sydnie, who broke her arm jumping on the sofa. Upon hearing the news, Sydnie’s aunt and founder of BooBoo Kids, Therese Andjeski, began looking for a surprise get well t-shirt for her wounded niece. To her amazement, nothing of the sort existed! An entrepreneur by trade, Therese partnered with long-time colleague Barb Gee to create a unique and fun line of get well t-shirts for kids suffering from all kinds of common, yet always unexpected, injuries, including broken bones, stitches, bumps and bruises.
What started as a charming idea has hatched into a successful business model with shirts sold in hospital gift stores throughout Ohio, Pennsylvania and Kentucky. The concept, now only a year old, has inspired Therese and Barb to extend sales nationwide through their website, boobookids.com
